Another mass bird die-off now reported in Canada

Publication time: 8 January 2011, 12:40

Another inexplicable mass bird die-off has been registered, this time in Canada, a local news agency Postmedia News reported.

The fall of several dozens pigeons occurred near the town Saint Augustin de Desmaures, in Quebec. It is reported that the number of dead birds reached 80.

 

The incident is now being investigated by Canadian ornithologists. A similar incident with birds who died in flight was registered in the same area in mid-December. At that time, 25 dead pigeons were found in one place.

 

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries of Quebec, Nicolas Begin, said tests of dead bird specimen that were currently being performed at an animal pathology lab in the provincial capital had not given definite results so far.

 

"This is something unusual and we take it very seriously, but at the same time, we don't think there is any reason to worry", he added, noting that there is no connection between this incident and recent cases of mass birds deaths in the U.S. and Sweden.

 

In a small town in Arkansas, more than 4,000 red-winged blackbirds dropped from sky on the New Year's Eve, and later, large groups of dead birds were found in Louisiana and Kentucky.

 

Similar cases of unexplained mass deaths of birds have been registered in Sweden and Italy this week.

According to Daily Mail, abrupt changes in climate are perhaps to blame in numerous cases of mass death of birds and fish, and sudden changes in weather are now registered more often.


Scientists believe that the cause of fish die-offs could be an unknown illness. Also, in their view, this phenomenon was not caused by environmental pollution, because in that case a lot more fish would have died.

Mass deaths of birds and fish cause discussions about the end times.

 

When millions of dead fish were found this week on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay and birds began earlier to fall from sky in Arkansas and Louisiana, people immediately rejected the official scientific explanations and started to speak about the approaching end of the world, writes The Los Angeles Times.

 

Western blogosphere, Facebook and Twitter, are filled with conspiracy theories and panic messages: "So they blame heavy noises for birds deaths and too cold water for dead fish.... Are we supposed to believe that?"; "We are all going to die!".

 

To lower a wave of apocalyptic moods, Western media publish comments by Christian theologians who "do not confirm an imminent end of the world".

Thus, a certain professor of Religious Studies at the George Washington University, Paul Duff, said he didn't feel particularly alarmed" about all that. As pointed out by Jill Rosen, "he wasn't even amassing food, and continues to work in his office".
